In The Mean Time...
For those of you unaware of this case, the toddler disappeared from the Timber Creek Campground last July while camping with his family.
His parents, Deorr Kunz Sr. and Jessica Mitchell, thought the boy was being watched by his grandfather when they decided to do some exploring. When they returned and realized their son wasn’t with the rest of the family, the boy’s grandfather told them he thought he was with them.
After 30 minutes of searching, the family called police. What followed was an intensive search using police, search and rescue teams, dogs, people on horseback and atvs, and even a helicopter.
Approximately 150 people scoured a 2.5 mile radius surrounding the campground, sonar equipment was used to search a reservoir located a half a mile from where the boy was last seen, and a wolf’s den was even searched.
Absolutely no trace of Kunz has ever been found.…
GAINESVILLE, FL – Police have arrested 52-year-old Linda Swift after she allegedly attacked an 89-year-old and bit off two of his fingers.
The unprovoked attack happened Tuesday morning at a group home where Swift and the victim both lived, when Swift started punching the elderly man in the head and chest.
During this assault, Swift bit off the end of the man’s index finger to the middle knuckle, as well as his ring finger to the first knuckle. Police say she also managed to tear a large portion of the man’s flesh from his hand with her teeth.

NEW YORK, NY – A man known as the “mental guy” has been taken into custody after he hacked a neighbor to death with a machete during an unprovoked attack, chopping the poor woman’s hand off in the process.
Police say 59-year-old Carmen Torres-Gonzalez was outside of an apartment in the Mott Haven Houses, talking to her elderly mother’s home health-care aide, when 25-year-old Angel Feliz-Volquez emerged from his apartment and attacked.
Using a machete, Feliz-Volquez hacked at Torres-Gonzalez as she screamed in horror. In an attempt to defend herself from the machete’s blade, the poor woman’s right hand was chopped off and her left hand was partially severed. She had also suffered wounds to her throat, cheek and shoulder.
“It looked like somebody just took a couple of buckets of red paint and poured it down the stairs,” said a neighbor who described the aftermath as a scene from The Shining. “We have never seen so much blood.”
When he was done, Torres-Gonzalez lay dead in a pool of her own blood and Feliz-Volquez, who some neighbors describe as “the mental guy”, went back inside his apartment. …
On Monday morning, Craker went to the hospital for bleeding where doctors determined she had recently given birth.
Craker denied having a baby so the hospital called police to inform them of the situation and that a baby may have been “dumped.”
Police responded to Craker’s home where she lived with Cate and three others and would find blood on a towel and sheet in the washer, blood on the laundry room floor, and blood on the floor of the couple’s bedroom. They would also find a bloody knife.
Craker eventually admitted that she gave birth to a baby girl in her bedroom and that she tried to flush her daughter down the toilet. Cate said the same thing, adding that he didn’t know what they did with the baby afterwards.
Investigators would find out soon enough after the baby’s body was found in a bathroom trashcan, and a plumber would find a placenta in the sewage line along with something that looked like a human limb.…
According to police, Havelow lives with his grandmother, mother and sister. He reportedly is not happy with the situation because, according to him, the women keep him from having a normal social life.

Nelson and the girl had been dating since September of last year until the girl’s mother found out about the relationship and stopped it.
The two continued to see each other secretly, until earlier this month when the girl told Nelson she didn’t want to lie to her parents anymore and broke up with him.
This did not sit well with Nelson, so he allegedly vandalized his ex-girlfriend’s car in the school parking lot. When that didn’t win her over, he posted pictures of him having sex with the girl on social media.
Then, on Monday morning, police say Nelson went to the girl’s home and confronted the girl’s mother, 46-year-old Teresa Ryan, as she pulled up to the home with her 5-year-old daughter in the backseat.
An argument ensued, and Nelson fatally shot Ryan once in the chest and twice in the back before fleeing the scene on foot.…
Sewall and Hicks have been charged with first-degree cruelty to children for alleged acts against a child, whose age has not been released, in 2013 and 2014.
According to indictments, Hicks deprived the child “of necessary sustenance to the extent that the child’s health and well-being was jeopardized.”
Sewell is accused of hitting, kicking, and biting the girl on separate occasions, as well as causing the girl “cruel and excessive physical and mental pain by requiring her to eat her own feces.”
Hicks is facing one count of first-degree child cruelty while Sewell is facing three counts. The indictment does not detail the relationship between Hicks and Sewell, but the girl shares Hicks’ last name.
Sewell isn’t the only person we have featured on DD who has been accused of forcing a kid to eat their own shit. Nicole Candelaria was accused of forcing her boyfriend’s 3-year-old daughter to eat shit, and two women in New York allegedly forced a 2-year-old to eat feces from his own diaper.…

I’ll get to the lawsuit details, but first here’s how the face of an 81-year-old man from Alaska ended up on the floor of a Montana car wash.
Back in 2013, Elgie Bedford was on his way to Texas from Alaska to visit his children and grandchildren. In the early morning hours, Bedford’s car went off the road near Big Timber, Montana.
Bedford got out of his vehicle and started walking down Interstate 90, presumably to get help. Unfortunately, the old man was struck by a CRST Expedited semi-truck being driven by 45-year-old David Welk.
Welk turned around to check the spot of impact but didn’t tell his coworkers he saw Bedford’s body in the road, only that he saw clothing and a duffle bag. After leaving the scene, Bedford’s body was struck by multiple vehicles before police found him at around 7:30 a.m.
One of those drivers was 31-year-old Wryan Young, who was with her father when she ran over Bedford’s body.…

MILTON, WA – Police have arrested 29-year-old Michael Dufour after he allegedly left his 15-month-old daughter in a car in subfreezing temperatures long enough for her to suffer frostbite and hypothermia. Warning, this story contains a lot of diarrhea.
Police and medics were called to Dufour’s home after receiving a report that he had left his daughter alone in a car for an unknown amount of time overnight.
When medics arrived, they found the naked girl inside the car with two windows down in 26 degree weather. When police arrived, they found Dufour had already taken the girl out of the car and was carrying her into the house.
Dufour was naked from the waist down and had diarrhea running down his legs and carrying the girl in a diarrhea covered comforter. Inside the home police would find garbage everywhere and, of course, more diarrhea.
Medics noted the girl was red and lethargic and took her to the hospital where she was treated for hypothermia and minor frostbite.
When police asked Dufour why he was covered in his own shit and why his daughter was being turned into a popsicle, he said it was the girl’s mother’s fault.…
According to reports, Karen Lotz was upset with her husband Friday night because he had left the coffee maker on. Angry, Larry unplugged the coffee maker and retreated to his office and locked the door.
After Karen used a key to unlock the office door and enter, Larry admits he fired four shots from a .45-caliber handgun. Karen was hit three times, including once in the head, according to prosecutors.
Larry then called his son to tell him what he had done, then called 911. “I just shot my wife. I just shot my wife,” Larry tells the dispatcher. “Please, send an ambulance.”
Karen was rushed to the hospital in serious condition, but would die from her injuries. Larry Lotz was arrested and charged with first-degree murder. He is currently being held on a $3 million bail.
I absolutely do not condone what Larry did and I hope he is punished to the fullest extent of the law.…
Police went to the home after a worried father called 911 to report his son had called and claimed to have killed his girlfriend and was going to kill himself.
Inside the home police would find the bodies of two SUNY students – Kelsey Annese, 21, a member of the women’s basketball team, and Matthew Hutchinson, 24, a player on the men’s hockey team – as wella s the body of a former student, 24-year-old Colin Kingston.
An official cause of death has not been revealed, but police say a firearm was not involved and that a knife was found at the scene. Geneseo Police Public Information Officer Jeffrey Szczesniak said it’s too early to rule the deaths as a murder-suicide but they “believe the perpetrator is one of the deceased.”
I am totally speculating here, but with the info that has been released through various news reports, you can kind of figure out what happened.…
CONCORD, CA – Police have arrested 37-year-old Dormanicia Lawson after her paraplegic husband was found with bedsores and maggots feeding on his body.
Police were called after Lawson’s 36-year-old husband was taken to the hospital with trouble breathing. Once there, nurses found the poor guy was covered in bedsores and maggots.
“He could not talk. He had shortness of breath. He had maggots that were eating his body,” said Concord police spokesman Corporal Christopher Blakely. “You would think he was a corpse.”
By the next day, he was.
Police decided they should talk to the man’s wife, his primary caregiver, to find out how in the hell her husband had gotten to that state. When they arrived at the couple’s apartment they shared with their two sons – an 11-year-old and a severely autistic 19-year-old – they quickly found out.
There was a stench emanating from the apartment and inside police would find cockroaches and maggots crawling on a mattress, as well as dead flies wedged into the ceiling. The two boys echoed their surroundings and were described as dirty and smelling like shit.…
LARGO, FL – Police have charged 25-year-old Mackenzie Freeman after he became angry about his mother’s dog eating his marijuana, and pushed her to the ground.
According to the police report, Freeman and his 57-year-old mother got into an argument after he found her pooch had scarfed an undisclosed amount of his cheeba.
Freeman got so angry that the 6’2″, 222-lb man-child punched holes in the wall, shoved his mother to the ground and hit her in the head with a pair of pants.
Police were called to the residence, but Freeman took off running when they arrived. After a brief chase, Freeman was apprehended and taken into custody.

The man, identified in reports only as Tomy S, had been invited to the girl’s party by the girl’s mother, who knew Tomy from a home for the disabled where she worked.
After the party, the girl told her mother that Tomy had sexually assaulted her in her bedroom. At this point, my brain told me to stop trying to imagine how the hell a man with no arms and legs could molest a little girl, and then I found out — and wish I didn’t.
So let me share the pain.
According to the girl’s testimony in court, Tomy was reading the girl a story in her bedroom, along with other children. He initiated a “dare” game in which he pretended to be a vet who needed to examine her, and put his head on the girl’s stomach.
Afterwards, he gave the girl a horrible birthday gift. He instructed the other children to leave the room so he could examine her more thoroughly.…
